1. Three Chewie鈥檚 Angels: Star Wars takes a pastel turn聽with this awesome trio聽calling themselves Chewie鈥檚 Angels. With enough faux fur and a little spray paint, this costume wouldn鈥檛 be too hard to DIY.聽(via IB Times)

Hellgirl

2. Hellgirl: Who knew a red face and some little horns could look so hardcore? Instead of going with the traditional sexy devil, go a little more gritty with a Hellgirl costume. (via PopSugar)

3.聽Sylvanas Windrunner: Get your WoW (World of Warcraft) on with a little undead warrior聽action next Halloween. While the purple warrior princess armor might take some expert DIY skills, the maroon cape and horns will be a cinch. (via @mtv)

4.聽Sharknado: A new Sharknado show was just announced, meaning that the shark fans were out in packs, err shoals. Or is it schools? Either way, if you can hunt down a shark mask and a shiny silver bodycon dress, your Halloween costume this year will be killer. (via San Diego Union Tribune)

7. Woodland Fairy: We鈥檙e not sure if this character is the trickster Pan or a mystical fairy, but we love the earthy vibes she鈥檚 giving off.聽Chalk your hair to get those bright green hues, DIY a flower crown and have fun with face paint and jewels for a delicate, pretty look. How about those purple eyebrows? (via Matt Cowan/ Getty Images)

Sadness

11. Sadness: We have no doubt that we are going to see a lot of costumes inspired by Inside Out this year. And luckily聽Halloween is during a pretty cold time of year, so you can just bundle up in a sweater and still have a 鈥渉ot鈥 costume. (via PopSugar)

12. Michonee from Walking Dead: If you鈥檙e more of a zombie killer than a zombie, grab a sword, some chain and get ready to hunt down some walkers. (via Hit Fix)

13. Mad Max Tribe: Talk about fierce! These Mad Max girls are as tough as it gets. Get the look with dark, smudgy eyes, a neutral lip and some seriously messy hair. Leather corset is optional. (via San Diego Union Tribune)

15. Mera: Say no thank you to the mermaid tail聽and grab a trident instead for a powerful Aquagirl outfit. We might still go for some cool blue mermaid makeup though. Ya know, just to show off that pastel eyeshadow. (via IO9)
